track/wrong track is going up at just the right time for president obama. >> right. in places like ohio, the economy's been better than it has been, at least across the country, on average. rich lawry has a smart column, a conservative columnist, piece in "politico" this morning where he talks about the effect that bill clinton's speech seems to have had on this race. that basically he did a better job than anyone else at saying any of the problems that are still out there, you can't dump them all on president obama. and lawry argues that that was an effective argument. it seems like since then the numbers have changed appreciably. and i think they're more linked to the convention than they are to the data ratner's talking about. there's no doubt everything he's pointed to is real, but i think politics and perception is often shaped by these big events and sort of how you feel emotionally, and that's what's getting picked up. >> all right. jim vandehei, packer fan, you can't get that win back, but we got the refs back. >> i'm still hoping we get that win back. >>> coming up next, a litt
before. >> right. and that's the issue. the republicans have backed off this whole idea of obama as a job killer. they used to use that terminology. they tend not to now only because they've seen this coming. but that would be the strongest argument now that the jobs are not of the same quality. but in terms of numbers, this was a very big argument for the republicans six months ago and prior to that that more jobs -- in fact, the way they like to say it, wolf, you've probably heard it many times before there were more people working on the first day of president obama's presidency than at any other point. that's the way they'd like to say it. bottom line it was a small milestone but an important one for the president. >> now, the other number we're looking at is gdp growth in the last quarter. it went up but not by much. >> right. so the way you measure growth in the economy is how much it grew versus the same quarter, the same three months the year before. and the most recent quarter that we have numbers for is the second quarter of this year. we had thought that the economy grew 1.7%,
't heard the obama administration do that yet. is that the issue right now? >> well, as the prime minister said to the general assembly today, wolf, the drawing of the red line is designed to give diplomacy and sanctions more time to work. we believe by drawing that red line you won't be increasing the chances of military engagement, you'll be significantly lessening the chances of a military engagement because the iranians have been presented with red lines in e past in trai of hormuz and they've backed down. we know they can see the color red. we're engaged in a conversation with the obama administratio about setting limits to iran's enrichment process because that's the part of the iranian nuclear program that we can actually see and mor. and that the part that's in facilities that areservle and are still lnerable. and so the obama administration's engaging with in a dialogue t it. you mention tt the secretary of state will be meeting with the prime minister this evening. thidengt willalking netanyahu tomorrow. th p of an ongoing dialogue that we've had to reach an understanding about
. >> then madonna came up with this baffling take on the obama presidency. >> for better or for worse, all right, we have a black muslim in the white house. >> obama has long had to fight off the wall claims that's secret muslim. play donna said later, i was beg ironic. yes, i know obama is not a muslim. >> i can't tell you're being ironic. that's why she got the back larchlt you didn't make any motion to say is i'm being ironic or sarcastic or a wink or anything. >> deborah: madonna has made no secret of who she supports. she had a fake tattoo of the president's name scrawled across her back. >>> it took a national brouhaha but it looks like that disputed call during monday night football has pushed the nfl and those locked-out referees to address their dispute. though it doesn't appear to have hampered the social life of the guy who made the disputed call. whod they give it to? touchdown! >> what does the most reviled ref in america do after making that jaw-dropping touchdown call? >> the most bizarre finish you'll ever see. >> here he is posing with an unidentified blond wearing, that's right, a
, where what the candidates say and two in these battleground states ask influence votes being cast right now. both candidates have traveled to early-voting states to implore voters to cast their ballots. barack obama will be preparing for debates in nevada, where cbs expects 65% of vote voters to vote early. his presence in the state of nevada stirs up activities for democrats who then will try to lock up their voters early. if a campaign can get lots of voters to vote early, then the campaign can spend its time and resources in other battleground states with other voters. >> pelley: these early votes aren't counted until election day. i wonder how do the campaigns know how people are voting early? >> the secretary of state in most of the early voting states reports daily the names of those who voted -- not how they voted, just that they did. what the campaigns then do is match that against the listes of voters they've identified over the years. so if mrs. jones has asked for an early ballot but isn't on that daily report, the campaign will contact her. this is why ground game matters.
on drugs is just not working. that begs the question, how would president obama or mitt romney tackle the question? cnn's john zarrella takes a look. >> the crew of the cutter fires its machine gun. >> got smoke. got smoke. >> all right! >> reporter: disabling the trawler. on board, 20 tons of marijuana. this was the mid-1980s. the drug war was at its height. then vice president george bush headed up a task force to fight the problem. >> we have got to do better in interdicting it. >> reporter: in miami, cocaine is found hidden in commercial jets, flowers, even boxes of yams. the problem is, some aren't yams at all. rather, plaster casts painted and shaped like yams. inside, pure coke. stach houses and drug labs are routinely raided. that was a war on drugs. these days, it's not even a war of words. the white house doesn't haven't call it a war any longer, focusing more on prevention. and in this political season, the issue of illicit drugs rarely gets a mention on the campaign trail. when it does come up, president obama and mitt romney appear to be on the same page. >> that the pres
candidate is trailing in the polls? well, you blame the pollsters. over the past several days right wing radio and television pundits have gone wild with the new republican talking thought, the polls are wrong. pay no attention to what you're seeing or what you're hearing, that obama is up. according to some on fox and elsewhere, the pollsters are all in the president aes back pocket and they can't be trusted, including fox's polls apparently. here is dick mars staggering even sean hannity on fox news this week. >> as he's at the moment in a very strong position. i believe if the election were held today, romney would win by four or five points. i believe he would carry florida, ohio, virginia. i believe he would carry nevada. i believe he would carry pennsylvania. >> oh, come on. >> pennsylvania, and i believe he would be competitive in michigan. people need to understand that the polling this year is the worst it's ever been because this is the first election where if i tell you who is going to vote, i can tell you how they're going to vote. the models these folks are using are vazy. t
